Possibly My Favorite Sport Coat for Autumn 2012
It shouldn’t be too much of a surprise that my favorite sport coat of fall 2012 would come from the United Arrows x Bathing Ape collaboration entitled “Mr. Bathing Ape”. I’ve loved every iteration of this collaboration – from its more humble and refined beginnings, to its current more bold offerings. This sport coat is a great example of not backing away from bold patterns, but still remaining neutral enough to pair with too many options of complimentary pieces. Keeping with earth tones doesn’t hurt either, as I’m currently being ever-so-gradually whisked away into another romantic Montreal autumn. However, I cannot recommend wearing the jacket with the matching hat, as shown below. I believe something of that level can only be executed by Nigo himself.
